Players at Scotstoun Netball Club are looking forward to the World Youth Netball Championships kicking off at the Emirates Arena on Thursday.
The 40-strong club, who were crowned Evening Times' Community Champions last year, will be there to support club member Sarah Kerr, 20, who plays for the under 21s Scotland squad.
Tracey Lamb, who co-coaches the club with the Scotland under 21s assistant coach and Glasgow 2014 hopeful, Lesley MacDonald, said they would be out in force at the arena over the 10-days of competition which kicks off on Thursday.
The 34-year-old, who is also the Scotland under 21s physiotherapist, said: "It's huge, we are extremely excited to have it in Glasgow.
"I was the physio with the under 21s in the Cook Islands and had a fantastic experience out there so having the championships here one year before the Commonwealth Games is extremely exciting.
"A huge number of the club are keen to go along and we are hoping they will be there for the Scotland vs Jamaica match to support Sarah Kerr.
"We have got quite a number of younger players coming through our ranks with the aspiration of being part of a national squad and I think they will all be motivated by going along to see Sarah playing and other national squad players knowing they might have the chance to be on court and represent their country one day."
The World Youth Netball Champions 2013 will take place in the Emirates Arena from Thursday until Saturday, August 31.
Host nation Scotland will battle it out against 19 other countries, from as far afield as Singapore and Samoa.
The winning country will be crowned the best in the world at under-21 level.
Among the nations competing are reigning champions Australia and netball giants England and New Zealand.
Sarah Kerr, from East Kilbride, has trained with Scotstoun Netball Club, where the players range in age from 15 to 50, for the past year.
She said: "It is great that we can have so many of the younger ones coming up to support us.
"It is going to be great to know I have people out there routing for me from the club."
Tickets for the 2013 WYNC start at £3 for children and £6 for adults
